Yes, I got up and watched the royal wedding. I got up to watch the last royal wedding too. I even stood in line when I went to school in London to see all the royal gifts for Charles and Diana.
As the world seems in such turmoil these days, it is nice to see that there are some things that can still bring joy and happiness. Meghan Markle is a woman of the times that we live in. An independent, successful, mixed-race, product of divorced parents, an American from Los Angeles who grew up and married a Prince of England. I want to see more Meghan Markle’s. She represents that no matter where we come from, we can do anything. I am pretty sure jolly old England has never seen the likes of her which makes it even more thrilling.
Hats off to the Royal Family for opening their arms to the new world. Bigger hats off to Harry for falling in love with whoever he damn well pleases. Congrats to the newlyweds. The world will be watching!
